Fabricating and Tensile Characteristics of Recycled Composite Materials

B.F. Yousif, K.O. Low and N.S.M. El-Tayeb

This study presents an experimental investigation to study the tensile characteristics of recycled polymers. A compression-molding machine is developed to fabricate the required polymeric composites. The selected recycled-materials are low-density polyethylene, high-density polyethylene and polypropylene. The experiments are conducted by universal tensile test machine. In addition, the effects of blending polymers with and without carbon black, in several percentages (3-10%) on tensile strength are investigated. After carried the results, it is found that blending LDPE, HDPE and PP with different proportion improves the tensile stress up to 20% (LDPE), 4% (HDPE) and 25% (PP). Meanwhile, the addition of carbon black increases the tensile stress by about 23% (LDPE), 2% (HDPE) and 23% (PP).
